What is a bigger threat to your safety?

I found the song Trump can play if he gets the nomination

Feel free to suggest more.

Is a brokered convention a less disastrous outcome for the GOP than a Trump nomination?

The video below makes me think it would be a very bad idea for the GOP to try this but here is some punditry from Nate Silver and his colleagues: http://fivethirtyeight.com/features/republican-brokered-convention-donald-trump/

Bush donor says if Trump wins the nomination, he will vote for Hillary

If you had a choice between a known evil and an unknown evil which would you choose?

One billionaire supporter of Jeb Bush is making it crystal clear that he plans to go the safer route.

Mike Fernandez, a top Bush donor in Miami says if Donald Trump is the Republican nominee, he will do the unthinkable and vote for Hillary Clinton.

Fernandez took out a full-page ad in the Sunday issue of the Miami Herald where he called Trump "a BULLYionaire with a hunger to be adored."

Fernandez told the Miami Herald, "My frustration is really with that sector of Republican voters that are so blinded by the demagoguery. I know the campaign -- or any other campaign -- is not going to say it. This is not about Jeb. This is about us. This is about the voter."


People Hilariously Criticize Bible After Reading Verses They Think Are From The Quran

28 Reasons Iím DONE Talking To Most Of My Conservative Friends And Family Members

By Tiffany Willis

1. You support revisionist history.

When I was in a high school history class, Iíll never forget one thing our teacher taught us: what you read in history books isnít always accurate. The example she used was history books in the Soviet Union, now known as Russia. She informed us, to my shock and horror, that the Soviets pretty much included what they liked in the history books and left out everything else. As a result, she said, there were generations of Russian students who were misinformed.

Oh we were dismayed, my classmates and I! Those poor little Russian kids who were being taught false history. But waitÖ.you guys on the right are trying to do the same thing right here in the Good Old U.S.A.

Last year, I wrote an article about Texasí plan to revise history and include Moses as a Founding Father. When I shared the article with an educated Texas adult and asked ďis this OK with you,Ē his response was:

ďWhy teach our children at length regarding the horrors of slavery as we have eliminated that curse from our society? We donít deny it occurred here or anywhere else in the world, but, why dwell on a segment of our past that has been corrected? I donít think it is appropriate to drag our dirty laundry through our history lessons at length.Ē

Because itís HISTORY. You donít get to just rewrite history books if itís unpleasant. What are you thinking? Shall we rewrite the Revolutionary War? ďA minor disagreement with Great Britain.Ē How about the bombing of Pearl Harbor? ďA spat with the Japanese.Ē

2. You cite Jesus as your reasoning for rejecting marriage equality.

Yet the Bible only mentions homosexuality six times. Six. Times. 6. This many:


So why is this one of the biggest issues on your agenda? Why are you putting so much energy and hate into an issue that clearly wasnít one of Godís major concerns?

As Christians who are pro-family, why would you deny people the right to the sanctity of marriage? If marriage strengthens families, why would you not want everyone to have this, even if you disagree with their choice of mate?

YOU (we) have destroyed the sanctity of marriage. There is no possible way that gay marriage can do more harm to marriage than heterosexuals have done. Yet we seldom hear a sermon bemoaning the divorce rate or people living together before marriage. Why is that? Because the pews would be empty.

3. You use Biblical scripture to excuse yourself from feeding the hungry.

There is nothing you do that makes me more disgusted with you than your abuse and misuse of 2 Thessalonians 3:10.

For even when we were with you, this we commanded you, If any will not work, neither let him eat. 2 Thessalonians 3:10

You are deliberately taking the scripture ó ONE VERSE! ó out of context when you use them to justify your own hatred of poor people. And again, youíre showing your ignorance.

From Liberal America reader Eric Susee: ď2 Thessalonians 3:10. are NOT the words of Christ. They are the words of Paul of Tarsus, a man who never met Christ.Ē

Biblical scholars have pointed out that the author of 2 Thessalonians was referring to Christians who stopped working in anticipation of Christís return.
